It’s official. The Chicago Bears have issued jersey numbers to their entire seven player rookie class.
Roquan Smith, LB - #58
James Daniels, C/G - #68
Anthony Miller, WR - #17
Joel Iyiegbuniwe, LB - #45
Bilal Nichols, DL - #98
Kylie Fitts, OLB - #49
Javon Wims, WR - #83
Some of these might change after the Bears finalize their final 53-man rosters, so I’d hold off on buying that Iyiegbuniwe forty-five just yet.
There have been a few other jersey changes made in case you guys to update your scorecards.
Inside linebacker Johnathan Anderson who was #58, is now #52.
I have a feeling Roquan Smith will do Wilber Marshall’s old number better justice than Anderson did.
Offensive lineman Will Pericak is now #73, leaving #68 for the Iowa rookie.
Numbers for the undrafted free agent rookies have not been issued because those signings have not been made official. Since rookie minicamp isn’t until May 11-13, the Bears still have a little time before making that announcement.
One more number nugget... Anthony Miller, who is sporting Alshon Jeffery’s old number seventeen, has some thoughts...
